Secure and control the traffic to your applications with private networking, traffic filtering, and load balancing.
On Kubernetes 1.19 and later we now provision two fully-managed firewalls for each new Kubernetes cluster. One firewall manages the connection between worker nodes and master nodes, and the other manages connections between worker nodes and the public internet.
You can now change the default VPC network for a region. When you change the default VPC network for a region, the new default network will be automatically selected during applicable resource set ups unless otherwise specified.
All Droplets created after 1 October 2020 are placed into a VPC network by default. You can no longer manually enable VPC networking on existing Droplets. You can migrate existing Droplets into VPC networks using Snapshots.
Load balancer health checks now support the HTTPS protocol. You can now configure load balancers to verify the health of your Droplets’ HTTPS endpoints.
